See this quick tour of my studio of to see my recent woven Baggage Carts. And listen to meaning and memories embedded in these new works.
Over Christmas break I left all the baggage ???? of 2020 behind in this cart to clear my way forward in 2021. And then other carts showed up so clearly, I have more baggage to excoriate.
My work Caribbean Friendship Bracelet was selected for Fiber Art Now’s Excellence In Fibers VI.
The Excellence In Fibers VI exhibition that was planned to open in December 2020 at the New Bedford Art Museum but will now be a virtual online exhibition running through March 2021.
And in publication
Caribbean Friendship Bracelet will also appear in the winter issue of Fiber Art Now’s annual Excellence In Fibers catalog issue out the end of this year.
I promise to share the links.
In the exhibition Material Identity, artists and makers are invited to explore the substance of material, paying special attention to their place in the world, either from a focus inward, or how they identify in. The show asks how does materiality represent who we are? Does the material you use dictate who you are as a maker? How does medium speak to who you are as an individual?
EXHIBITION DATES: July 10 – Aug 29, 2020
LOCATION: Artworks Center for Contemporary Art in Loveland Colorado
I have three fiber works in the exhibition
Beauty is given –
and a given. It’s in the
streets and in the sky.
Due to Covid19, Dayton Society of Artists is presenting, Intertwined, a national juried exhibition of fiber arts, online. I am one of 32 fiber artists in the show. The diversity and quality of work is amazing.
Intertwined, officially opens May 1, 2020 at 6pm
BUT you can view the exhibition at intertwinedgallery.com now.
Take a sneak peak on new Quarantine Art from I Am My Hair series… All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go…
I invited friends to my studio to wrap yarn, recycled sari thread, ribbon onto cotton rope.
5 people imbued their essence and became a part of the rope, as we discussed the trials and tribulations of our hair.
Finding a common denominator amongst us all, HAIR.

Ultra Violet explores the notion of overwhelm by questioning ideas of permission, protection, aesthetics, trauma and identity as a black woman living in a world encoded with “Universal truths” determined by whiteness.
